Public Viewing


This painting has been exhibited in public only once, in:


"A Tale of Two Rivers - a solo art exhibition by Low Hai Hong" was held at The Fullerton Heritage Gallery, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore from 30 May to 30 July 2014.


The exhibition showcased Low Hai Hong's 18 oil on Chinese rice paper paintings that showed the streets along the two rivers that he painted most in his artistic journey, the Singapore River in Singapore and the River Seine in Paris, France.


In an interview with the Business Times for the exhibition, he shared that when painting oil on Chinese rice paper, he applies the oil paint layer by layer for the effect that he wants.
